This summer, the Shasta College Theatre Department is excited to present Little Shop of Horrors! Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows.
General Auditions for Little Shop of Horrors will be held April 22nd and 23rd at 6pm in the Shasta College Theatre. All in the community are invited attend. Please prepare a 1 minute comedic monologue and 32-bar song (preferably from the show). Accompaniment by piano will be provided and is the preferred method for the audition. A speaker system will be provided for smart phone connection if preferred, but no technical help will be available.
An imaginative mix of R&B, Gospel, Rock and Roll, and 1950’s Doo-wop, Little Shop of Horrors tells the story of meek floral assistant Seymour Krelbourn and a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” after his coworker crush. Set in the backdrop of downtown skid-row, Seymour is promised fame and prosperity by his carnivorous companion provided he keep Audrey II well fed with human blood – by any means necessary!
Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI) and directed by Dr. Gregory Thorson, with sets by David Fraser, lighting by Tim Dye, costumes by Hilary Fahey, hair and makeup by Mat Macdonald, and musical direction by Dr. Elizabeth Waterbury.
